  • Friday, September 30, 2022

The Supreme Court of Tennessee has temporarily suspended John Scott Wesson from the practice of law upon finding that Mr. Wesson was substantially non-compliant with a Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program (TLAP) monitoring agreement.

Section 12.3 of Supreme Court Rule 9 provides for the immediate summary suspension of an attorney’s license to practice law in cases where an attorney has failed to substantially comply with a Tennessee Lawyer Assistance Program monitoring agreement.

Mr. Wesson is immediately precluded from accepting any new cases, and he must cease representing existing clients on Oct. 30, 2022. After October 30, 2022, Mr. Wesson shall not use any indicia of lawyer, legal assistant, or law clerk nor maintain a presence where the practice of law is conducted.

Mr. Wesson must notify all clients being represented in pending matters, as well as co-counsel and opposing counsel, of the Supreme Court’s Order suspending his law license.

Mr. Wesson is required to deliver to all clients any papers or property to which they are entitled. Additionally, Mr. Wesson must comply with all requirements of Section 28 of Supreme Court Rule 9.

This suspension remains in effect until dissolution or modification by the Supreme Court. Mr. Wesson may, for good cause, request dissolution or modification of the suspension by petition to the Supreme Court.
